Good service

Good comunication from the sales team keeping me up to date on my flight and times from Birmingham and booking me in to the airport Hotel

First booking

21 Sep 2018

My first booking with ROL. My call was answered quickly and in a friendly manner. However, when I asked about whether there would be choices for dinner on the ship booked for the expedition voyage (not my experience on previous voyages with Hurtigruten), I was told that there would be. I have since rung Hurtigruten who say that most dinners will be set menus, so they will need to be informed about any specific food needs by ROL. I have now informed ROL. I trust they will pass it on. It's best for staff to admit they don't know the answer to a question, but will find out, rather than misinform customers, no matter how well-intentioned. A payment receipt was sent immediately, but I was warned that it might take up to 14 days to received my booking confirmation documents, which is fair enough, but I've not experienced such delays with other companies. There was no mention of the size of the deposit required (30%) until I was asked for payment. It would have been useful to have this information in the brochure, as it is considerably bigger than I have been used to with other companies. Update 21 Sept: ROL rang me about the points made above - all sorted out now, and I do appreciate the fast response; it shows that they do value customers.

I was dealt with by a young lady, called emily, who quickly booked our holi

Overview


Portugal’s Douro River winds its way through towns that have somehow managed to preserve their distinctive culture, and way of life, even as the world all around them has succumbed to change. From elegant Lamego to Regua and Vega de Terron you’ll find that people still ply their traditional trades in the historic pockets of the Douro Valley. The vineyards that grace the banks of the Douro are worked the way vineyards in the region always have been. The wines they produce, from the many highly loved varieties of port, to their fine unfortified reds and whites, are as rich and plentiful as ever. The fare is as honest and as delicious as it was in days of yore. And, most refreshing of all, the communities are every bit as friendly, and welcoming.
